Taken in a 17th c log house at the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, Oslo. The Museum has collected old houses from many regions of Norway and reconstructed them on the museum site.
This image is a detail from the main room of the house where a whole family lived, ate and slept in this one room.
A difficult image to get right as the horizontal wall logs were not parallel to the floor, and the window was even more skew-whif!

Many thanks for the interest on the recent mini-series from the Vigeland Sculpture Park.

Thanks for bothering.

A beautiful image which could have been painted by a Dutch Master...

Its the way you captured the light that makes this image stand out. Excellent.

The light is amazing and in 17th century you wouldn't have expected all the lines to be parallel WinkWink

Having seen the available light and chickened out from attempting this myself I can vouch for the sheer difficulties you have overcome in creating this image. I can't say that verticals and horizontals bother me at all!
Excellent.

The fact that the lines seem to be doing their own thing adds to the quirkiness of the building and definitely doesn't look like a camera perspective problem. The light picking out the various items is superb, Malc.

Why try to get verticals where none exist and horizontals where there are none? This is a de-light (sorry, couldn't resist!)

You need some strawberries in this shot.

Have you seen the TV series called Lillehammer? Worth a look if you havent, - a lot of fun.

I love the way the light hits the objects on the table. Surely horizontals and verticals are a modern obsession!!

Well done,

Jade

Well composed and beautifully lit. Works fine in colour, and would make a good B&W too.

Simple and stark as the life must have been in these simple conditions.
The subtle colour suits this graphic image very well Malc.

That's what I like about these old buildings - the verticals aren't always vertical and the horizontals aren't always horizontal, so you don't have to worry about getting them straight! Wink
Wonderful light and shade here, Malc, reminds me of a Rembrandt Smile
